The Story of a Card
I received my May card kit from Simon Says Stamp the other day and oohed and aahed over all the goodies in it. Not that I could do anything half way decent with them, but they sure are pretty and fun to look at anyway. This stamp set with roses, sentiment, and chipboard heart were in the box so thought I'd give it a go. I should have just kept it in the box and oohed and aahed over it I think. BUT, I had to at least try something. These red roses started out so pretty and PINK - shaded just right and all that.......and then my Copic ran out of ink! Grrrrrr....of course I don't have the refill (yet)! So the pretty pink roses became red with the shading being pretty crappy all the way around. Then I had this brilliant design in my mind - it should have stayed in my mind because it sure didn't come out looking so fantastic on paper. Ok, I started adding the roses - um......not enough of them - too many of them - too many leaves - not enough leaves...............Another BIG grrrr........... finally just said the heck with it and here it is!
On a happier note - Jim was outside as I was snapping a picture of this and said "WOW, that's pretty"!!!
(Now you just gotta remember he's the one that thought a cow was a pig on another card I did!!!) What more can I say!!!!!
I'll enter this in the challenge at There She Goes (April Showers, May Flowers).
Thanks for stopping by.......and if you get a chance, pop on over tomorrow as I have fun sign for your pleasure!
